Author Platform Performance Best Practices
That's the biggest ordeal in the industry. Everyone is fighting for exposure. This is the part that I hope you young authors took seriously and grew up, and you old writers, went back and fixed your mistakes in old manuscripts.
Remember, the goal is to be a gray haired man in a quite office, sipping Jack Daniels and writing to his own rhythm. It takes work my friend. A lot of it! If you're anything like me, you've prepared your wife for your retirement and the last thing she wants is you with a bottle of bourbon, all alone with no one to suggest he slow down (If only she could see the celebration in the sip after the words come up on the screen) ... but that is why writers fail. They want the lifestyle, but don't want to work for it first. This ain't the lottery. You really have to be good. Work now, pension later.
For instance, if you loved werewolves and wanted to find good young adult books about them that were adventurous, what would you type in the amazon search bar? Not the title of your awesome book WarWolves! Instead you'd type, "best werewolf adventure stories," or "good werewolf books like American Werewolf in Paris," etc...
A final tip. Never be unsure to share with fellow writers and authors. It may seem like the market is crowded and naysayers will always reinforce the fact that books are old news... But people have been trying to get in front of the spotlight for generations. Everyone gets ten seconds of fame. Not everyone leaves a legacy that will last.
